A Victorian Diamond Pheasant Brooch

Description

A Victorian diamond set pheasant brooch, pave set with rose diamond with a cabochon ruby eye, standing on a base with fence and foliate detail, the diamonds set in silver and mounted on yellow gold, circa 1880, measuring 4.9 x 2cm, gross weight 5.4 grams, illustrated in “Jewelry For Gentlemen” by James Sherwood, page 199.

A fine Victorian brooch. During the mid-Victorian era, men’s jewellery featured an array of motifs related to hobbies or professions. This brooch was most likely worn as a reference to pheasant hunting, a popular sporting pastime during the nineteenth century. The body of the pheasant and surrounding base and fence details are all set with lively and glittering diamonds. The eye of the pheasant is a vivid cabochon ruby. The pheasant’s legs have been meticulously rendered, featuring wonderful detail. This brooch is a lovely and expressive piece.
